Looks like a Saab. Likely 9-4X. I thought Saabs were orphans.

I don't think I've seen three of them. When I saw this, it was camera time.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saab_9-7X
The Saab 9-7X was introduced in 2004 for the model year of 2005, and was made by General Motors, and the 9-7X was also built on the GMT360 platform, which is the same platform that the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender, Oldsmobile Bravada, and Buick Rainier were all built on. The 9-7X was Saab's first ever SUV.

The Saab 9-7X was originally available in two trim levels for 2005: the Linear and the Arc. The Saab 9-7X was not available with a turbocharged engine, which was quite unusual for a Saab vehicle. All Saab 9-7X vehicles come with all wheel drive (2005 was the first year all wheel drive was offered by Saab), eighteen inch sport wheels, and sport tuned suspension as standard equipment. The 9-7X was built at GM's Moraine, Ohio assembly plant. The Saab 9-7X is classified as a midsize luxury SUV.

Ah, the Saab 9-7X. They're pretty cool, just a Trailblazer with a Swedish badge. I've always wanted the Aero... which has the same 6.0L LS2 as the Trailblazer SS. 400 hp sounds like a lot of fun in something like that... plus it would make an awesome tow rig!
